    Is it possible to go to my local industrial supply house and find the "O" rings for the 12ga and 20ga? If so does anyone have the dimensions?

    12 gauge is:

    a size 21 Viton o-ring acquired from an auto parts store.

    A size 33 plumbing o-ring from Ace Hardware works too, but they're
    Neoprene, and you should change them once a year even if they look good.
    About 33 cents each.

    The size is AS568A-021

    In either case, the dimensions are:

    15/16" ID 1 1/16" OD 1/16" cross section

    Order size -021 in Viton material for the 12ga. A bag of 25 is under $6.00. Order 5 bags for a bigger discount. You can measure the 20ga and check the dimensions. I think they are a number -019, but don't quote me on that.

    All O Rings Viton

    These are OK for replacement. Not quite as tough as the original Remington part, but they seem to last about as long. I replace them every time I clean the guns, since I bought a BIG bag a few years ago. The Neoprene ones from the hardware stores don't seem to do it for me. They'll work in a pinch, but I wouldn't depend on them when the scores count.

    You can also order the o-rings in bulk from smallparts.com.

    Any of the above will work fine. I went to Home Depot with an original and matched up one as close as I could once in a pinch. It was slightly thicker than the factory one and as a result the barrel seated a little tighter on the magazine tube. I think that was about three years ago, and who knows how many shells.

    Buy the Remington o-ring from Brownells. They are made from a tougher material and will last a lot longer. Stay away from the ones on eBay as they are junk. Put a few drops of BreakFree on the o'ring when you install it and the carbon build-up will be easier to remove.

    I've been using the genuine Remington o-rings, which have a metallic sheen to them. I don't know what they're impregnated with, but they far outlast ordinary o-rings. Yes, you can buy a pile of cheap o-rings for the price of a Remington o-ring, but this is clearly a case of getting what you pay for.

    Marlon, Why would scotchbrite save Orings? they are fixed in the groove of mag tube as I recall. Correct me on this if I'm wrong. Regards..

    Hey Ed,

    Where are you going to put that O-ring on your Kolar??? Maybe you know something that I should know?

    We used to call those "speed secrets".

    Cheers

    I have to go back to Home Depot and post what it is I bought there. Tough as nails and about 20 cents......

    EE, I stand corrected. But why would the ring move out of the groove provided? Doesn't it just seal the barrel hanger? I am only going by memory on this so might be dead wrong. You're right bout the scotchbrite. The TinMan

    The o-ring doesn't move, or at least, its not supposed to move.

    Its there to prevent the gases from escaping along the magazine tube towards the muzzle end.

    And if you shoot it wet with Break Free CLP, you won't need scotch brite OR steel wool to clean the magazine tube.

    Nothing wrong with the Remington o-rings. They're just way overpriced, for what they are.

    Viton o-rings from NAPA work fine, and will last at long as the factory o-rings.

    Neoprene o-rings work fine too. They just don't last as long.

    Marlon, scotchbrite is more like sandpaper, even fine grades. I used a light oil on the tube like tri-flo. it would turn black but still wiped clean with a cloth. Never needed abrasive. I have never had to replace Oring. Tournament Trap model, bought used. 25 yrs ago. Lucky I guess.
